FEATURES Lightweight, Compact The Robin engine and revolving field generator designs provide added output poxer per weight and economical opera- tion. Centralized Control The witches. meters. and receptacles located on top of the engine for eas)- generator operation. Large IO-Liter Gas Tank *IO-liter (2.6 LT.S.
Easy Starting with Recoil Starter 13. Circuit Breaker for Troublefree Operation 14. Ruggedly Built Frame The box type frame is so ruggedly built that two or more generators can be stacked. Another convenient feature of the Robin generators. 15. A Caster Type is Optionally Available.
FUNCTIONS 5-2-l STATOR The stator consists of a laminated silicon steel sheet core, copper wire which winds the core, and lead wires which de- liver the power. The copper wire is wound into the main coil. sub (.ausiliary) coil, and DC coil. XC output power is taken from the main coil.
(DC) to the field coil turns the rotor and magnet. The cooling fans cool the generator by drawing cooling air from the slip rings and dis- charging it through the fans. Fig. 5-4 MODEL RGX180 (mm) 99.6 (In.) 3.92 (mm) 2.36...
5-2-3 BRUSHES An exciting current is supplied from the AVR to the rotor. The brushes are made of carbon, and the brush-holders of plastic. It is necessary to keep the contact pressure between the brushes and slip rings within specitic limits. Thus. care must be taken about brush length.
5-2-6 CIRCUIT BREAKERS Models RGX180 and RGX240 have a pushbutton circuit breaker and Model RGX240D two pushbutton circuit breakers. Nomrallp, the pushbutton circuit breaker is closed with the button pushed into the panel to keep the circuit live. If an overcurrent runs. the button comes out to break the circuit.
5-2-7 FUSE The fuse prevents DC output overcurrent and short<ircuir overcurrent. Ii the generator is operated at a level exceeding the maximum current. it can cause insulation deterioration. ‘curninp. electric shock. and electric leakage. The fuse protects the generator from these troubles. 5-2-8 RECEPTACLE and AC PLUGS...
Rubber pads for controlling generator vibration and disloca- tion. These are made of the most suitable rubber material to optimum shape and hardness. Models RGX180. RGX240. and RGXI4OD in particular use diagonal support rubbers to reduce vibration. 5-2-13 PIPE FRAME The pipe frame consists of a pipe frame skeleton.

The RG Series 1s the revolving armature type. and the RGX Series is the revolving field tk-pe. The differences between these types and then features are described below. The constructron of the revolving armature t>-pe is shoxn in Fig. 5 -15. and that of the revolvmg field type in Fig.
5-3-2 PRIMARY EXCITING ACTION The RGX Series employs an exciting coil in the engine mag- neto for raising the primary voltage. This action is explain- ed. The RG Series generates a voltag2 when the generator IS started again because of the residual magnetism remaintng in the yokes and poles.
5-3-4 DUAL VOLTAGE TYPE (RGX240D) The dual voltage t)-pe can generate two Foltages from a sin- gle generator. It comes in two varieties: 12OV~‘11OV and 1 lOV!ZOV. The circuit is shown in Fig. 5-l 8. Each of MC1 and MC2 generates an AC 12OV (or 1lOV) with same phase, which is one half the rated output voltage.
5-4-2 CONTROL SYSTEM The control parts are certainly located to permit centralized control at the top of the engine. The parts added or changed are as shown in Fig. 5 -20. CONTROL SPRIVG WASHER GOVERNOR LEVER Fig. 5-20 -23- PANEL CP.
5-4-3 FUEL SYSTEM The large-sized IO-liter fuel tank is mounted in the frame. The fuel piping was changed as a result as shown in Fig. 5-Z 1. 5-4-4 COOLING SYSTEM -4 baffle is provided to prevent engine cooling air from rais- ing the temperature of otherparrs.
5-4-5 CARBURETOR The carburetor has an air vent and a rubber pipe to ensire stabilized performance at high temperature. 5-4-6 OTHERS The air cleaner and muffler were modified in shape, but are installed in the same way as before. The air cleaner element is the same as the one used in the cyclone type.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS 1. Use extreme caution near gasoline. A constant danger of explosion or fire exists. Do not fill the fuel tank with gasolin u-hi12 the engin is runmng. Do not smoke or use open tlame near the fuzl tank. car2ful not to spill fuel when refuueling.

BRUSHES The brushes must be smooth where they contact the slip rings. If not. polish the brushes smooth with sandpaper. X brush that is not smooth produces arcs between the brush and slip ring leading to possible damage. Usable brush lengths are from 5mm to ljmm as shown in Fig.

Check it by mounting the suspectedly faulty AVR in a normal generator, or mount a normal AVR in a generator which fails to generate voltage.
FUSE HOLDER and CIRCUIT 9-5-l CIRCUIT BREAKER Push the power switch on and check continuity. If current flows, it is normal. Devices such as that shown in Fig. 92 are necessary for checking the circuit breaker if it properly operates. The rated current is shown on the side of the circuit breaker.
